Q for Mr. Kurz on hip injury

Postby ChenZhen » Nov 01, 2007 10:15

dear mr kurz,

about 1 1/2 months ago i went to the hospital because i felt pain in my hips (when i chamber my left leg for a sidekick there is pain surrounding my right hipjoint, also when i get onto a bike with the left leg first,...). the doctor made an x-ray and said that i have damaged the right joint capsule of my hip. he said it will take about 3 months to heal and he even allowed me to do any kind of activity were i don't feel pain (which means no stretching or kicking but i can do kettlebell and bw exercises). besides that he didn't give me any suggestions how i can speed up the healing so i was wondering if you have some advise for me?
i realy don't know what i did wrong, i don't think it's a lack of strength as i have been doing isometric stretches and heavy squats,... for quite a few years now, i even achived the side and front split with your method, here is a picture of me doing it:

thanks for reading!

Q for Mr. Kurz on hip injury

A good deep-tissue massage specialist may be able to facilitate the healing of the joint capsule by relaxing the muscles around it and by preventing capsular adhesions--which would limit your range of motion after the healing.

In your situation I'd eat lots of meat with sinews and also take anti-inflammatory supplements such as Turmeric, Traumagesic or KappArest (if you tolerate pepper). You can find these supplements on the Web. Traumagesic helps with healing and is good to have in your first aid kit.

I wonder about your kettlebell exercises as most of the dynamic ones require a hip snap.

BTW, nice photo. Would you like us to put it on the stadion.com?

mr. kurz,

thank you so much much for your quick answer, i will try your suggestions!

concerning the kb exercises, yes, i do lots of swings and snatches that require the hip snap but i don't feel any pain doing these and so i thought it's ok because the doctor said i can do everything where i don't feel pain... :?

of course you can use that picture, actually i would be honored if you used it!
it was taken last year during my wushu training trip to china.

best wishes

Another great choice is a good bone broth soup in which the key spices are naturally-anti-inflammatory. I use fresh minced ginger, onions and garlic. Add other vegetables of choice for carbs and fiber. I make this with a 3-4 pound whole chicken, though any sinewy bone-in meat can be used, simmering it slowly for 20 hours. By then, all the cartilage and sinews have melted into the broth and the bones, a great source of calcium, will crumble. I no longer take glucosamine sulfate because I feel I am getting enough of those elements directly in this broth.

Best regards,
